February 2016 - $55,000 Verdict in St. Louis County

In February 2016, Aaron Haber won a $55,000 verdict for a client who injured his neck and back in a rear-end accident in St. Louis County.  The insurance company refused to offer an adequate amount because there was only $325.00 in property damage to the client's vehicle.  The offer to settle the case prior to litigation was less than $8,000 and the insurance company finally offered $20,000 the week before trial.

This case was important because it showed the insurance company that it cannot bully client's into small settlements. While the client did not break bones or have surgery, the injuries caused him pain for many months. The insurance company even hired a doctor to claim the client's injuries should have healed within six weeks.  The jury did not like the way the case was defended and rendered a verdict for almost exactly what was asked for in closing argument.  If you or anyone you know needs legal representation on a case like this please contact the lawyers and Muchnick & Haber.
